Miller to Lecture for Killeen Chair Series

From St. Norbert College, October 29, 2014
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

Kenneth Miller will visit the St. Norbert College campus to deliver a lecture as part of the college's annual Killeen Chair series.

Miller is professor of biology and Royce Family Professor for Teaching Excellence at Brown University. He will give a lecture entitled "Exploring Darwin's 'Tangled Bank' - Evolution, God and Science in America Today," on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. in the Walter Theatre in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

This lecture is the second installment in the Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy's four-part 2014-15 lecture series, which is entitled "Science and Religion: Rejecting a False Dichotomy." The aim of the series is to demonstrate the compatibility of science and religion, in keeping with fides et ratio, or "faith and reason," a motto of the Catholic intellectual tradition.

Established in 1984, the Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy aims to bring well-known scholars of theology and philosophy, and their work, to the St. Norbert College campus. The program strives to emphasize the importance of theology and philosophy to a liberal arts education, to highlight St. Norbert College's commitment to personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging education, and to benefit the college, the Diocese of Green Bay and the broader community of Northeast Wisconsin.

The Killeen Chair is named after the late Rev. Sylvester Killeen, O.Praem., the second abbot of St. Norbert Abbey and chancellor of the college.
